It Is apparent that the part 'which pro hibition is to play In the next presi dential campaign is crystallizing rapid ly. The Republicans are trying to take the lead to choose the position they regard as most desirable and to ma noeuvre the Democrats into taking or seeming to take' the contrary position The Republicans, apprehending that the issue is bound to be to the front and that each of the parties must be identified In the public mind with one or the other, prefer to take the dry Eide and take it first. One of the leading elements in this decision is the result of the recent election on the prohibition -issue in Ohio. In that election, the ls3ue was specifically set forth in the shape of an amendment to the state constitu tion. ' It was framed in terms most fa vorable to the "wets." It called for al most the mildest conceivable relaxa tion of the Volstead Act ' The propos al was merely to raise the permitted proportion of alcohol from one-half of one percent to two and tbxee-quar.ers percent Drys Are Successful On this Issue,- the vdrys" won by a considerable majority, and whatever the Ohio electorate does comes close to being the accepted , Bign post of policy for the Republican party as now constituted and led. In the next presi dential election the issue will be more prohibition or less. It will be a more drastic enforcement of the present limitation, or a relaxation of that lim itation existing. The next step in a more effective limitation would be to make the pur chase of bootleg whiskey a criminal act. the same as the sale or trans portation of it. The proposal has been' entertained seriously by per Bons high in the Harding administra tion to-put the. purchaser of contra band liquor on the same basis as the receiver of stolen goods, ,by making him equally subject to prosecution. It is trUe there are some Republican leaders who, either on personal con viction or as reflecting their com munities' views believe greater dry ness to be a mistaken policy,, but a ereater number . of the Republican ieaders.are, either dry by, conviction or else believe' that as the, situation j lies the - niore advantageous policy Trom a political point Of view is to lake the sade of greater dryness. Can't Force Democrats The Democrats will not accept the position which the Republicans are now trying to force them into with out a struggle. A considerable body of Democratic leaders favor the "wef" position on the theory that they can carry the- "dry" South anyhow and that their best chance of carrying what they call the 'eastern salient," the big states of New, York, New Jer sey, Massachusetts and Connecticut, lies in taking the "wet" side. Against these are a very consider able number -of Democrats who are so "dry" by conviction that they will never consent to the. party accepting a "wet position as a mere incident of political maneuvering. To the pres ent writer it has seemed recently that these "dry" Democratic leaders, eith er because of" personal or for other reasons, are attaining an increasing ascendency in the party counsels. In short, there, does not seem to be much essential comfort, for . the "wets" in either party. (Copyright, 1922, by the New York Evening Post, Inc.)

A little group of statesmen and one soldier, formerly a general In supreme command of the Greek army, strolled into a stone flag ged yard early yesterday and faced death like gentlemen. Today it is possible to relate for the first time the story of how five members of the cabinet that fell with King Constantino and the man who led the troops of Greece against the Turk, were executed by a firing squad. Condemned to death for treason, held responsible for the crushing de feat administered to the Greek3 by Mustapha Kemal, the ministers at first refused to believe the government would really go through with it. They were aware that the British threat ened to sever relations if they were killed and other powerful. Influences were called on to thelrbehalti. w . uiven communion a--""-. Finally the hour arrived." "Priests arrived at the Jail and the doomed men were offered communion.

All were on hand except former Pre mier Gounarls, who was too ill to leave his bed for the pre-death cere monies. Immediately after the communion the condemned men" were hurried to the' place of execution. Gounaris scarcely able to raise his head, was rolled out of bed onto a stretcher, placed in an ambulance and so con veyed to the spot selected. Gounaris Indifferent., Six squads of soldiers, five riflemen in each, were waiting there to send the fallen statesmen into the next world.

Nov. 29. Demo crats started the second day of their filibuster against the Republican SDonsored anti-lvnchine bill todav. im- mediately upon the re-convening of the senate. The inauguration was a demand for a quorum called by Sen ator Underwood, of Alabama, the Democratic leader, as soon as the chaplain concluded his prayer. The roll call finished. Senator Underwood presented a motion to adjourn until Friday. Senator Curtis, Republican, of Kansas, Republican whip, broke in with a point of order and in arguing his point declared the four hour fili buster waged yesterday was without precedent since the "Force" bill was debated to death in the early nineties. Scientific Filibuster. What senate attaches characterize! as the "most scientifically conducted fillibuster" carried on,- in the senate in years started immediately after tho chaplain's .conclusion of the morning prayer yesterday when Senator Hani, son, of Mississippi, who led the mi nority fight from the floor objected to the usual course of dispensing with the reading of the Journal. Usually disposed of in a few seconds, the process of approving the Journal yes terday thus required about four hours and formed the business of innumer able roll calls and other parliamentary time consumers. After two hours of the fillibustc had passed the Dyer bill itself came up for. discussion for the. first time, Senator Underwood leading the debate with his statement that the Democrats were not "disguising that their- pur pose was to prevent consideration of the measure, which" he said, "wouid never txSeome a law." and.

Paid Circulation Yesterday, was 12,177 (Br Associated Press) LAUSANNE, Nov. 29 Friends here of Prince Andrew of Greece, brother of former King Constantine, today voiced anxiety as to his fate in vier of the revolutionary government's execution of the six former cabinet officials and army officers yesterday. Prince Andrew was arrested recently on the Island of Carfu, where he had taken refuge, and waa removed to Athens for trial, charged with dis obeying the orders of the general staff while at the head of a division In Asia Minor during the conflict with the Turks. - Andrew is Interned at Athena under heavy guard and is not even allowed to receive food sent by his European friends because of the suspicion that he might in this manner receive se cret messages. Prince Christopher was given a week in which to return to Greece and settle his personal af fairs. He had planned to land at Car fu on the return trip to visit Prince Andrews, but abandoned this inten tion because of his fear that tho revolutionary committee might have changed its decision in the meantime and arrest him. ; Americans arriving here recently from Greece explained the trial and execution of the former government leaders as partly due to the Greek masses as voiced by the revolutionary committee to fix the responsibility for Greece's trouble on the men higher up, whether ministers, dr army offi cers. Atmosphere Tense The great importance of , the ques tions to be decided here is testified to by the tense atmosphere surround ing all the activities of the conference. The delegates are living under a nerv ous strain similar to that experience at the Paris treaty-making gathering. Heads of the delegations hold fre quent meetings to talk over agendas m efforts to smooth out tne more thorny problems whlcn might en danger the success- of the conference. Correspondent find great difficulty In getting the facts and this inevitably results in the wildest speculation. The official communiques issued by the secretariat bureau' are meagre. They are conimea to. routine statements concerning the meeting commissions and names, of speakers. Xhesalient facts are carefully Omitted. Question Held Up- The question of th - frontiers of Turkey has been held up because the leaders of the discussion are endeav oring to side-track dangerous alter cations in the official sittings by seek Ing to arrive at the general lines of an agreement at private talks. Isniet Pasha, head of the Turkish delegation expressed the opinion today that the conference would inevitably meet with difficulties but that the work was gradually taking shape and that there was no cause for anxiety as to its successful outcome. "We are here to sign peace," said one delegate, "and peace must be signed. LONDON. Nov. 29. The British cabinet was summoned today to con sider the grave situation created by the execution in Athens yesterday of several former nigh officials. The fac that practically no news has reached here from Athens in regard to the de tails or ra execution would indicate that the Greek government is employ ing a censorship as was In the case In various past emergencies. me view is expressed m govern ment circles that the executions were the result of party 'differences among tne tireeKs. The action of the Athens government in conducting its internal politics in such a manner, which Is de scribed as barbaric win. it is " said will have a great effect in lowering ureeK prestige at the Lausanne con ference and throughout the world. MORE WOMEN THAN MEN LEAVE FARMS FOR OTHER TRADES WASHINGTON. Nov. 29 Large numbers of women than men are leav ing the farms in search of more lu crative fields of endeavor, the census bureau says, basing Its statement on on analysts of the 1920 census sta tistics. The enumeration shows the ratio of males to females was highe for farm population than for the total population, despite the fact that th foreign born element in which the males considerably outnumber the. fo males. Is found mainly in the cities The sex ratio of farm population on Jan. 1, 1920.' was 109.1 males to 100 females, while the ratio for the entire population was 104 males to 100 fe males. Of the number of farm dwellers, to talling 31,614.269, males number 16 496,338 and females 15, 117,931. Of tho total farm population 49.5 per cent was 21 years and over; 24.7 per cent between 10 and 20 years, and 25 per cent under 10 years. Those 2 years and over numbered 15.632,093 For the country, as a whole those 21 years and over comprised 57.6 pe ceni of the total population. The farm population therefore includes a rela tively large proportion of persons un der 21 and a relatively small propor tion 21 years and over. ' The difference in age distribution is declared by the census bureau to be due In large part to the fact thp. the majority of persons who leave the farm to take up residence elsewhere have reached or passed 21. The larg est proportion of children and youth in the farm population is shown for the southern states and the lowest for the New England states' New York, New Jersey and California. Eugene G. Grace.

Mayor Lew Shank's offensive against crooks, loafers and all persons without visible means of support bagged 73 men and 15 women today. As the blue coats and plain cloth esmen started making their rounds of air hangouts, led by Mayor Shank per sonally, the loafers scurried to cover. The "tip" had gone forward that a drive was beginning, by telephone and oy courier. Four of the men and one of the wom en were released.

CLEHENCEAU FAILS TO GET HIS MESSAGE ACROSS AT CHICAGO By FRANK GETTY CHICAGO, Nov. 29. Only anti-cli max remained today of the great Thomson-Tiger battle. Georges Clemenceau's third formal American address delivered to an at tentive but unenthusiastic audience at the Auditorium yesterday, appears from comment and criticism through out the middlewest, to have missed fire. Mayor William Hale Thompson's much anticipated meeting "against' foreign propaganda turned out to be one of those affairs where precinct police captains waved standards with determined enthusiasm for a "four teen minute ovation." Speech Falls Flat ' The mayor's only direct reference to the Tiger was a compliment to the city's guest as a "patriotic French gen tlemen" and a profession that Thomp son did not believe the United States should participate at Lausanne. Clem enceau, up early as usual, expressed belief to his friends that his speech had fallen somewhat flat. The Tiger's delivery, more that of a kindly old school teacher than that of a war-time orator and difficulty with the acous tics were largely responsible for that. Clemenceau pulleifno punches and at times was more vitriolic than ever before; but somehow the whole thing seems to have failed to register. The Tiger will try again at Spring field tomorrow to get his message across to the middlewest. Those who heard the French war premier obtained a recurring impres sion that he feels himself upon the de fensive. He went out of his way with elaborate statistics to defend previous charges of breach of treaty faith by Germany. In this manner he struck (Please Turn to Page Ten) LOCAL CltlZENSEAGER TO WELCOME "TIGER" The announcement that M. Georges Clemenceau, former ; premier of France, now in the United States for the purpose of making a plea for his republic in a series of public addresses, is to be in Richmond for a few min utes next Monday night, has aroused much local interest. It is possible, however, that at the last moment the itinerary of the eminent Frenchman may be changed so that the return trip to the east will not include In dianapolis and Richmond. However, .Mayor Handley and a number of Richmond citizens have in terested themselves and will endeavor to ascertain definitely within the next few days regarding the movements of the Clemenceau party. If it is found that the schedule announced will not be altered, Richmond officially will greet the French statesman when he passes through the city on Monday night. Train No. 30, on the Pennsylvania railroad, stops in Richmond less than 10 minutes but it is hoped that ar rangements will be made wherebv a large crowd of Richmond people may see the distinguished visitor and pos sibly he may respond to the welcome that will be accorded. Andrew, of Maritime State, Opposes BULLETIN WASHINGTON. Nov. 29. The ad ministration bill to extend covernment aid to American shipping was passed toaay py tne nouse. The vote on final passage was 208 to 184 with two vot ing present. WASHINGTON. Nov. 29. Attack ing the administration shipping bill in the house today, Representative An drews, Republican, Mass, hailing from the Gloucester district, declared the measure still offered a "dangerous precedent which if adopted will hound us for years to come." Opposing the ' bill as Re-publican leaders were speeding it to the point of passage, the speech attracted un usual interest, since Mr. Andrews rep resents a district in one of the princi pal maratime states. The easiest course, ho said, was to support the bill, "but no member wants to see a bill put through which involves a large expediture of public money unless he is convinced that expendi tures will bring at least and equal re turn and will not constitute a btxl precedent for future legislation. Bad Precedent. T believe that this bill which in volves a possible expenditure of a billion dollars of the people's money during the next decade, is not likely to reduce shipping charges substan tially, nor bring obout equivalent ben. efits to the country as a whole, and I believe, that if adopted, if will be an other precedent in the way of federal aid and paternalism which will plague us for the rest of our days." On motion of Representative Ed monds, Pennsylvania, ranking Repub lican member, of the merchant marine, the section of the bill giving the ship ping board Jurisdiction over the coast wise trade was eliminated. Mr. Ed monds said the section was 'included to curb ruinous rate cutting, but it has been decided to withhold it until hearings could be held. Friends Confident. Although several more or less radi cal changes in the bill were adopted yesterday, all of these were offered by Republican members and the rejec tion in quick succession of nearly two score more - amendments offered by Democrats hostile to the measure had L sustained confidence among Its friends of a safe margin In the final test today. Important among the changes voted yesterday was an amendment necessi tating the authorization by Congress each year of payments from the mer chant marine fund to operators of American ships, this being generally viewed among members not only as do ing away with a permanent appropria tion but also as affording a check on expenditures. Other amendments ad-. ded to those previously adopted would exclude from receiving government aid concerns operating ships for their own benefit except where they trans ported cargoes of other shippers; withhold government aid for all voy ages on which liquor was carried, and reduce from 1,000 to 500 gross tons the minimum tonnage for sailing vessels eligible for government aid.
